put one on each side so the wheel stays centered and just adjust the derailer stop screw so it doesn't go all the way out.
The spacers should have some kind of ridge or teeth though, for gripping the frame. Observe how the dropouts and axelnuts do their thing on a normal bike without spacers to see what I meen.
Is this a steel frame bike? If a magnet will stick to it forget the spacers and just stick the hub on the bike, it has plenty of spring, anything else (except maybe ti) will be damaged, Al and carbon don't like to bend.
Wait, the axle it's self may be too long, the axle should not extend passed the dropouts or the quick release can't grip the frame(that will be obvious as you will be able to pull the wheel off the frame). If you are useing a solid bolt on axle it's good to go as they need to stick out (to screw the nuts on).
